Forest, Paper & Packaging

PwC continues to have the leading market share in the forest, paper, and packaging (FPP) industry. We provide professional services to more Fortune 500 forest and paper companies than any other accounting firm. We serve companies across the FPP supply chain, including forestlands, pulp, paper, wood products, packaging (fiber and non-fiber), tissue and specialty fiber-based products. Also, we are engaged in the emerging areas of wood fiber-based energy, fuels and chemicals.

Our reach and experience equips us to help companies address imperatives facing the FPP industry, including sustainability practices, managing costs and responding to a changing business and regulatory environment.
